longing to live life in his company

“Trust this, live in Jesus’ company, and you become a citizen of a new world, the world in which God’s rule has arrived.  You will still be living in the everyday world in which many other powers claim to be ruling; but you will have become free of them, free to co-operate or not, depending on how far they allow you to be ruled by God.  And what you do and say will become a sign of what is coming.  Your life will give a foretaste of God’s rule; and it will be directed to inviting as many as possible to come under the same rule, and to resisting the powers (natural and supernatural) that work against God and seek to keep people in slavery.”

-Rowan Williams, Tokens of Trust
